Be yourself. Be beautiful. Be free.

About Free Spirit Colorado

Free Spirit Colorado PBC (“Free Spirit Colorado”) is a Public Benefit Corporation that exists to promote self-confidence and self-image in women. We believe that every single woman is photogenic and beautiful.

Most of  the  women photographed on this site aren’t professional models: They are normal, everyday women that have embraced their spark, their essence, their freedom.

Our goal is to take as many photos we can of women to promote the strength and beauty found within them—no matter their circumstances.

Because of this mission, we founded the Free Spirit Explorers program.

We believe there are so many stories of courage, strength, and beauty to be found in the women of Colorado, and we don’t think cost should be a hindrance to capturing these women on camera.

Free Spirit Explorers is a nomination program that allows nonprofits and/or friends to choose a woman they feel deserves a portrait session to capture their unique story. The entire session will be FREE of charge to that woman!



About the Free Spirit Photographer


I know that God made every woman beautiful in their own way, and I want to capture that.”

Becca’s passion is to help the women she photographs truly feel beautiful. When people say they aren’t photogenic, she wants to prove them wrong—because everyone is beautiful. Becca’s talent is to help women find the adventure and freedom dwelling within them.


The Story Behind the Logo

Free Spirit FinalAgain

The Free Spirit Colorado logo was imagined by Becca. She commissioned this cool dude named Jeremy Worley of the Worley Co to draw the logo and bring her idea into reality.

The name “Free Spirit Colorado” comes partly from the verse in 2 Corinthians 3:17 which says, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”

The idea of the arrow comes from the verses in Psalm 91:4-5, “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day.”
